  • Missouri Stream Mitigation Method

    Expiration date: 5/14/2023

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Districts within the State of Missouri (Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, Rock Island, St. Louis) (Corps) initially finalized the MSMM on March 1, 2007. The MSSM is the primary tool the Corps uses to determine the amount of stream impacts and the appropriateness of compensatory mitigation proposals for Department of the Army permit actions within the State of Missouri. This updated revision of the MSMM will enhance the Corps ability to protect the Nation’s aquatic resources, while allowing reasonable development through fair, flexible and balanced permit decisions. The MSMM was further developed and modified using best available information and scientific concepts on May 29, 2013, and the Corps is planning to update the MSMM again. Thus, the Corps is requesting public comment on the most recent draft version of the MSMM.

  • Beta SDAM

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Baltimore, Buffalo, Charleston, Chicago, Detroit, Fort Worth, Galveston, Huntington, Jacksonville, Kansas City, Little Rock, Louisville, Memphis, Mobile, Nashville, New England, New Orleans, New York, Norfolk, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Savannah, St. Louis, Tulsa, Vicksburg, and Wilmington Districts, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Regions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 jointly announce the availability of the Beta Streamflow Duration Assessment Methods (SDAM) for the Northeast and Southeast (dated April 12, 2023). The methods are rapid assessment tools to help distinguish between ephemeral, intermittent, and perennial streamflow at the reach scale for the Northeast and Southeast SDAM Regions. The beta SDAMs may help provide technical guidance for identifying waters that may be subject to regulatory jurisdiction under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act; however, these methods do not alter or change the definition of “Waters of the U.S.”
